Resumen

LABARRERE CRUZ, Yureisi; MILI ALFONSO, Pavel  y  DELGADO PEREZ, Agueda Cristina. Safety of the patients in the refractive surgery with laser. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.1, pp.57-64. ISSN 0864-2176.

Objective: To Identify and to describe aspects of the patient's safety in the refractive surgery with laser, as well as the measures to reduce the risk of complications. Methods: A cross-sectional descriptive study was undertaken. The universe of study was the sample of 11 720 eyes from 5 955 patients who had undergone refractive surgery with excímer laser from 2005 to 2009 in Refractive Surgery service of ¨Ramón Pando Ferrer¨ Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology. Data was processed by Statgraph Plus 50 package and presented in charts and graphics. Results: The number of operated eyes progressively increased and the biggest figure was reached in 2008 and 2009, accounting for 24.5% and 25.1% respectively. The complications occurred in 0.74 % of the total of operated eyes, with a decreasing tendency in the course of time. Conclusion: There is an increase in the demand of refractive surgery with laser for the correction of the refractive defects in our center, where a set of measures that reduce occurrence of complications and offer higher level of safety for patient are implemented.
